Major Academic Projects/Research

 Present Research Affiliation:

Currently working in the JigCell project of Dr. Tyson‟s group; working to improve the „Model-
builder‟ and „Aggregation Connector‟ to give a better platform for modeling and simulating various
types of multistate and multispecies reactions.

 Previous Research Work:

 Information System Analysis for Banks: As a part of the “Information System Design” project
work in undergraduate level, different banking systems like ATM, SWIFT, PoS had been analyzed
based on their connectivity/ network structure, performance, security & transaction patterns.

 Undergraduate Thesis (“Static Caching in Dynamic Web Service”): Performances of any “Web
Service” depends on the ability of efficiently and effectively sharing of the component services
from different providers. A framework with lookup table structure was proposed to reduce the cost
of choosing component services and thus improve the response time of dynamic composition of a
composite Web Service. Simulation was done using J2ME on Apache.
